NBC’s ‘Hannibal’ Poster Gets the ‘Hamlet’ Treatment

NBC Hannibal Poster

Now that NBC’s messy doctor drama ‘Do No Harm‘ has officially been taken off the schedule, and effectively laughed into the history books with its record-setting low ratings, we’re continuing to wonder if the peacock will move toward introducing its buzz-worthy drama ‘Hannibal‘ into the vacant slot. Despite some incredible casting, NBC has given out relatively few looks at the adapted series of one of cinema’s most iconic killers, but is the latest artwork from ‘Hannibal’ a sign of things to come? Get a new look at NBC’s ‘Hannibal’ inside!

While we’ve yet to see any footage or receive any updates about NBC’s plan to debut upcoming 10-episode series ‘Hannibal,’ bits and pieces of the Bryan Fuller-helmed series have begun to surface. The latest look comes courtesy of SpoilerTV, which features the good Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) presiding over his table, either referencing ‘Hamlet’ or finishing up a meal, depending on your outlook of it.

In addition to the recent castings of ‘Dead Like Me’s' Ellen Muth, Lance Henriksen and ‘The X-Files’ star Gillian Anderson, Bryan Fuller’s ‘Hannibal’ features Laurence Fishburne’s Jack Crawford and wife Gina Torres playing Crawford’s wife, ‘Veep‘ star Anna Chlumsky, comedian Eddie Izzard, ‘SNL‘ alum Molly Shannon, ‘Pushing Daisies’ vet Ellen Greene, ‘Wonderfalls’ star Chelan Simmons, Lara Jean Chorostecki as a female interpretation of ‘Red Dragon’ character Freddy Lounds, and Raul Esparza as Dr. Frederick Chilton.

Set in the early days of Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen)’s partnership, Fuller’s envisioned series is said to be “a love story” told across at least seven seasons. NBC left ‘Hannibal’ off the mid-season premiere list, but network president Bob Greenblatt believes the series could debut before May, or make for good summer entertainment.
